    Steve, did Portable Heater Parts have what you needed? I checked out their website and it looks as if they don't sell to the general public. I'm also looking for a Lawn-Boy ph55 fuel filter. Frank

Won stay lit

I see this is an old question that didn't get an answer. I'm sure others will need the answer.
"Buddy" heaters can be used with a small tank or external tank with a hose.
From User's Manual: "Use with a Remote Refillable Propane Cylinder ONLY when the Cylinder is Located Outdoors and the Heater is Used with Mr. Heater Hose No. F273701or F273702 and fuel filter. F273699. Fuel filter must be replaced annually."

I learned the hard way. If your heater was used with an refillable tank with hose and you did not use a F273699 fuel filter then you've gummed up the Control Valve and probably the internal regulator.

I talked Mr Heater <website at mrheater dot com> into emailing me a guide to fix it. The company does have great customer support. The 2 parts did cost me $59.00

Porta heat 55 model 50137 does not work, fuel problems

REAL FACT is: If all individual components of the heater are at 100% but the air pump pressure is not on it's mark, then the heater WILL NOT continue to run!
Air Pump Pressure is directly related to fuel delivery. Read that statement again! It is the most important line of text on this website.
If the pump pressure is incorrect, then, the fuel delivery will be incorrect. As a result, the heater will not run to specs.
Instructions for setting the air pump pressure:
Air pump pressure is the pulse of the heater. Pump pressures range from 3 psi to 6 psi depending on heater BTU size (see chart below). A loss of ONLY 1 psi translates to a 30% to 17% loss of FUEL FLOW (starvation). You must know the specified required pressure and set the pressure accordingly.
Heaters with Hot Surface Ignitor technology are extremely critical to pump pressure. If the pressure is off by 1/2 psi, the heater may run for 5 seconds, then shut down because of IGNITION FAILURE. The only way to correct this problem is to set the pump pressure to DESA's recommended pressure specification.
  1. The FIRST STEP in diagnosing any heater problem should be checking the output of the air pump. Determine the air pressure required for the heater model that is being tuned. The air pump, in turn, is responsible for fuel delivery.
  2. If you do not know the required pressure look for a decal on the side (usually) of your heater. This decal will state the model number, serial number, fuel capacity, pump pressure, etc.
  3. If your plastic end cover looks like this......
m29609t.jpgM29609 has 2 threaded holes. The hole on the left has a square plug inserted. Remove the plug. Screw in the nipple end of the gauge into the threaded hole. Check for air leaks with soapy water.
If your plastic end cover looks like this......
m16545t.jpgM16545 has 2 threaded holes. The shorter projection with a hole on the left has a square plug inserted. Remove the plug. Screw in the nipple end of the gauge into the threaded hole. Check for air leaks with soapy water.
4. The other hole (longer projection) has a screw with a hole which adjusts a ball and spring relief valve assembly. Carefully adjust the screw until the gauge is reading the pressure level that is specified on the heater's label. If operating properly, the pump should produce more pressure than is required to operate the heater. The relief valve allows the excess air to escape before being sent to the nozzle.
5. Replace plug. Test for leak.
6. If you are unable to reach the desired pressure spray soapy water around the seal of the end cover- at the same time check the plastic cover for a crack. A cracked end cover will not allow the heater to perform properly and will not allow for an accurate reading. The pump must be set at the specified pressure in order to have adequate fuel delivery an adequate fuel atomization. Replace if needed.
7. If you set the pressure to specs and the heater does not perform properly or the cone does not glow a soft red, then check for other fuel delivery problems such as a clogged fuel filter, cracked rubber hose, clogged or worn nozzle, or a cracked nozzle adapter. Soapy water lightly sprayed in these areas will quickly identify the problem most of the time. Any air leak will create problems.

Heater glow plug ignites and blower comes on but no fuel ignition.After a few seconds the motor cuts off and glow plug goes out.

You should check for fuel flow. Remove the top of the heater. Watch out for the fan and turn the heater on. Look for fuel spraying from the nozzle with a flashlight. If there isn't any, clean the fuel nozzle and check your fuel filter. If this doesn't get your fuel flowing, check the air pressure going to the fuel nozzle. You will need to connect a pressure guage one of the ports on the airfilter cover. The plug with a small hole in it is for adjusting the air pressure. Remove the other plug and install an air pressure guage (0-15 psi). The air pressure you need should be listed on the label on the heater. If you can't get that pressure, check the air filter. Let me know what you find if this doesn't get you going and I will give you some other things to check.

Looking for info on lawnboy kerosine heater model#ph55.Where can I find an owners maual on line. It's a 1988 model.

Try those 2 sites. Apparently it is a problem getting info on them from Toro, who bought Lawnboy, but chances are good that the machine was made by Desa for LB. If you need parts, you may try a place like Farm and Fleet if you are in the midwest, or a similar farm/home store.

E 13 and beeping. Will not light

E13 means no ignition during the ignition part of the cycle. It could be no fuel in your tank, or a blocked flue pipe, or possibly a bad igniter. If you have some idea the tank is empty I would start there. If its empty have it filled. You, the home owner should be able to change the filter. If it's just out of fuel you should not have to call a repairman to look at the heater.
